This web site is lacking significant dates, but mostly looks like a
typical nearly dead product. The dates I do see are:

latest version and is still beta.
* RFC 6189 is dated April 2011 and mentioned on the site. This does
indicate some background activity going on.
I do like the idea of zfone and wish it had worked out better and
that standard (or zfone encrupted) SIP had actually taken off. Skype
just has a horrible security model (AFAIK it is just "trust us").

I got curious I found stuff like
Zfone 0.9.0 Build 265
on the net so tried to install it on windows 7
what a night mare it did something bad to machine
had to reload to a previous save point to get the
machine to run again. So I think even installing
it is full of bugs. I think I will wait till a
new version comes out. But it my be a dead product.
Nice idea maybe the government but pressure on him
to drop it since it does seem like a good idea.
